Strathcona Symphony Orchestra and “Going for Baroque”
March 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$12 – $25
The Strathcona Symphony Orchestra is “Going for Baroque” by offering concertgoers a taste of some of the best composers from the period, including works from G.F. Handel, Vivaldi, Telemann, and J.S. Bach.
Audiences love the timeless and universal sound of the genre, characterized by ornate melodies, complex harmonies, elaborate ornamentation, and elegant nuances written by European musical masters from the early 1600s to the mid-1700s.
Members from the SSO brass section will start the show with a flourish, playing George Handel’s “Music for the Royal Fireworks” fanfare. The symphony will keep the momentum going until the grand finale of the “Brandenburg Concerto No. 2”.
The Symphony’s “Opera Night” held last December, was sold out and the orchestra hopes to continue offering exceptional performances to the Comox Valley and Campbell River.
